Mike Pauly, the road home
Today I will let Mike bring you up to date with an article he has posted on his website, hope I am not infringing copyright Mike but here goes.
Fun in the Goldfields
I am in Coolgardie at the moment using the Council's computer trying to bring everyone up to date after such a long time. I walked yesterday from Kalgoorlie 39 kms narrow walking strip consequently my feet are bruised from getting on and off the road. Along the road I met Sara who contacted Leanne the daughter of the Men's Shed's President . When I arrived at 7.15 pm in the dark I was told the Men's Shed had booked me into a motel ;luxury. Yesterday I had my medications stolen and discovered my scripts were out of date. Waiting till 2.30pm to get scripts emailed. Tomorrow the Shire CEO will take me into Kalgoorlie to get the scripts filled out. Im staying tonight at his place. I have only 580 kms. to go to be back in Perth to fly to Bali for Renee's and Toms Wedding. Flight on May 14th ; After the wedding I will go back to Esperance to continue the journey around the coast back to Fremantle. I was tempted to get a train back to Perth for the Fairbridge Folk Festival where our choir was asked to perform; just as a spectator as its been a couple of years since I've been to Choir practice. When I went to the Men's Shed Conference in October the CEO appointed a Guardian Angel to look after me. He goes by the earthly name of Brian Durrant ; he has been most faithful and patient and has listened to my gripes with great humour. He watches my every movement with great interest on Life 360 he denies seeing all my movements. My apologies for not keeping you up to date since I sent my computer back home. Will try to do better. Love to you all. Mike Pauly
I might add that the Coolgardie Mens Shed had arranged for Mike to enjoy a roasted vegetarian dinner, a meal that he hasn’t had in quite a while, again luxury.
